Welcome from the Headmaster

Geneva English School is a not-for-profit happy and thriving co-educational international school community for children aged 3 to 11.

Our curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum and includes a strong French programme for all groups throughout the week. We prepare our pupils for 11+ education in a range of local schools as well as options back in the UK and elsewhere.

We are the right size to pay close attention not only to each child's individual academic progress but also to individual personal development.

It has been remarked that Geneva English School pupils are extremely well prepared academically but also have great social confidence.

Discover the new e-brochure to find out why Geneva English School, an international school based in Geneva, is so unique. 


Of course, there is nothing like experiencing it for yourself. We would be delighted to meet you and your child and show you around. 

We were told by current parents that nothing matched their personal visit to GES! 

A very warm welcome awaits you!

Best wishes

Stephen Baird, Headmaster
